He tore his labrum. That kind of thing generally heals much better, not faster, but better than tearing an ACL or MCL. In your knees you're dealing with cartilage, and when that cartilage starts to wear down the pain becomes unbearable for these guys to run on. A shoulder injury can be tricky, but if it heals at all, it heals 100%. People were worried about whether Drew would be able to throw again, and frankly I don't know why.

In baseball, pitchers tear labrums all the time, and they throw a lot more violently than quarterbacks, yet they come back.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

I tore my labrum 3 years ago and it still hurts from time to time.
